True to his word, Denver Broncos winger Courtland Sutton put aside contract issues and reported for Tuesday’s opening day of mandatory minicamp, NFL Network This was confirmed by James Palmer.

This ends a months-long standoff that resulted in the former Pro Bowler skipping all voluntary organized team activities in protest of his renewed contract.

Coming off a career-best 10-touchdown season, the 28-year-old Sutton tried to parlay his success into future financial security, reportedly seeking over $3 million raise based on the base salary he is expected to earn in 2024 of $13.5 million, of which only $2 million is guaranteed.

The Broncos, while always hoping for a solution, refused to budge. Neither did Sutton, who stayed away from Dove Valley while training alone in Florida.

The breakthrough came last week when Sutton, who faces a $100,000 fine for skipping mandatory camp, announced his return to the facility and resumed training with his teammates.

“I’ll be there,” Sutton said on the show DNVR podcast. “A little interesting fact: it kills me that I can’t take part in OTA tournaments. “It was a completely different offseason than any I have been a part of since I have been in the league.”

Soothed or not, Sutton will hit the ground running during Denver’s three-way quarterback battle. It looks like he’s motivated to make up for lost time in reclaiming the WR1 throne.

“Anyone who knows me and anyone who has played with me understands that I love the game,” Sutton said last week via DNVR. “I love playing football. I’m giving my all when it comes to preparation. When it comes to football, I’ll give it my all – man, keep it PG. The boys know this saying. We would give that to be able to get back to the playoffs and play for the Super Bowl and be able to go out there and do what we know we can do for this organization and for this city. No one deserves it more than this city to be able to come to a game where we’re in a situation where we’re probably out of the playoffs and walk into a stadium that’s almost sold out and know that this is the city. He loves us so much that even though we are in a difficult situation, they still show us love, so it is only right that we come and give them what they deserve. And the city deserves the Denver Broncos playoffs back in the Super Bowl.”
